Photo Restoration - Preserving Your Old Photos
Photo restoration is a very
rewarding service that Sparkling Graphics provides
in the Comox Valley and beyond. Preserving history through
restoration is a skill that Linda has successfully acquired
over time and with lots of patience.
The degree of success in restoring a photo
is determined by how badly damaged the photo is. Colour depth
and scratches can be corrected butsignificant tears, water,fire,
or light damage may be more challenging but not impossible.
Linda will be able to determine if the photo can indeed be
restored to near satisfaction and will work with the original
colour, depth and look of the old antique photo.
Why would or should photos be restored? The
most common reason is the sentimental,
historical value to the owner of the photos, so they can be
preserved or archived on a CD or in a book or photo album.
If you are an author that needs to have photos restored for
a memoir or biography check out The
Writer Connection which
is your link to self-publishing resources. Anybody who dabbles
in their family tree will be interested in preserving old photos
to pass down to the next generation. There is nothing more
appealing than a century old restored sepia-coloured framed
photo of your ancestors hanging on the wall in that special
room of your home. Sparkling Graphics also designs collages for
any occasion. It could be either a single photo or more involved,
like a memory book with or without text.
Restorations start at $75.00
and up. Call for a free consultation to accurately access the
amount of time needed on each photo(s).
Video Transfer will professionally transfer old reel-to-reel
film, VHS and video camera tapes, slides, negatives, and
photos to digital files, which are then saved on DVDs. Check
them both out!
